Jayson Molumby will not be returning to Millwall ahead of Friday’s 5pm domestic deadline, according to South London Press.
Molumby spent last season on loan at The Den, making 40 appearances under Gary Rowett as the Lions narrowly missed out on the play-offs.
Last month, a report from the Irish Independent claimed that the midfielder was set to link-up with Republic of Ireland teammate Troy Parrott and return to SE16 on loan for the 2020-2021 campaign.
However, nothing materialised, and despite Molumby failing to make any Premier League appearance for the Seagulls this term, he remains in Graham Potter’s plans and will remain at the Amex Stadium.
Both of Molumby’s outings for Brighton this term have come in the EFL Cup – and he has now featured more for Ireland this season than with the Seagulls after starting their Nations League matches against Wales and Finland in recent days.
The higher or lower Millwall challenge – Can you get 15/15?
This is a major blow for Millwall.
Given Brighton’s midfield numbers, it appeared that Molumby would be loaned out this season, especially when he described the Lions as “an option” back in August, making a return to The Den all the more likely.
Jayson Molumby not ruling out a return to Millwall on loan next season. "I'm sure they'd be an option for me."

Molumby’s performances have earned a topflight opportunity, and it would be great to see him feature in the Premier League in the coming weeks.
